No I didn't disconnect the battery, just unplugged the fuel pump and removed the tank, put it back on and nothing. The lights come on when ignition comes on but no horn, fuel pump,starter, all fuses good
Expert:  Steve replied 3 months ago.

- ensure you did not pinch any wiring when re-installing the tank.

- the horn is powered off the ACCY fuse. check it with an ohm meter or replace it. visual checks on these fuses do not necessarily reveal blown fuses.

- the fuel pump, coil and injectors are all powered off the fuel fuse and system relay.

- the starter is powered off the IGN fuse.
